Call for Applications: Japan-India Transformative Technology Network

Salzburg Global Seminar is seeking mid-career professionals in India and Japan with the aspiration and potential to lead positive transformation in their societies The Japan-India Transformative Technology Network will hold its first program in the picturesque and historic mountain village of Magome, Japan

Artificial intelligence (AI) offers significant opportunities to improve human and planetary health. As the power and reach of AI increase, how can society maximize the potential gains for people and environment?

Between May 26 and May 30, 2020, Salzburg Global Seminar and The Nippon Foundation will launch a new series - the Japan-India Transformative Technology Network - to help forge a stronger relationship between India and Japan and explore how disruptive technology can create social impact in the fields of health systems, accessibility and inclusion, and livable cities.

The inaugural program - Harnessing the Power of AI for Human and Planetary Health - will convene a select group of high-potential mid-career professionals with a proven track record of change-making from India and Japan.

It will encourage participants to initiate new collaborations and scale up existing solutions inspired by new technologies, and new financial, business, and social models. Selected participants will identify innovative ways in which technology, such as AI, can solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.

The Japan-India Transformative Technology Network will hold its first program in the picturesque and historic mountain village of Magome, Japan.

Magome has been chosen as a location due to its semi-remote location, strong cultural heritage, and beautiful scenery. It creates an experience akin to Salzburg Global’s home at Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg, Austria, and allows us to welcome all participants in conditions of trust and openness. The program venue extends along the historically preserved post road, which was previously a major route connecting Tokyo with Kyoto during the Edo Period.

Who Should Apply?

Each cohort of the Japan-India Transformative Technology Network will include a diverse, cross-sectoral mix of perspectives from professions such as:

  • Research and development: academic and corporate researchers, private and government research financiers, design specialists (products, places, policies);
  • Implementation and commercialization: technology specialists, public and private sector practitioners, business strategists, financial innovators, entrepreneurs, civil servants;  
  • Expansion and scaling up: national and municipal-level policymakers, community organizers and NGO leaders, journalists, thought-leaders, educators, and innovators.

Each cohort will be gender-balanced and consist of mid-career professionals with the aspiration and potential to lead positive transformation in society.
